    Friend just gave me an old Dell as noted. It has no hard drive. Therefore, cannot restore the system. Can anyone tell me how I can get all the downloads without going to the Dell site. Seems all they have is BIOS and CHIPSET.

    Thanks

    The Dell Dimension 2350 desktop is 17 years old.
    It appears it came with Windows XP Home Edition, but you can confirm that by looking at its Certificate-Of-Authenticity sticker.
    It appears to have these primary devices:
    Intel 845GL chipset
    Intel 82845G integrated graphics
    Analog Devices ADI 198x integrated audio
    Broadcom NetXtreme 440x integrated gigabit ethernet

    Its support site that I linked you to will allow you to download its primary drivers.
    Its support site will also allow you to read and become familiar with whatever you need to.

    If it came with no hard drive and Windows operating system, it's going to cost you a lot more than what it's worth to get it running.
    Personally, I would give it a decent burial.

    Seeing how it's that old....you could get a HDD and install a Linux Distro, in particular Zorin Lite which is designed for older hardware. It's free and you and use it live to test it out on a USB drive or DVD.
